Dr. Talukdar serves as Director of the Imaging Center for Women, a partnership between RAF and Mary Washington Healthcare (MWHC). The center provides highly advanced mammography, ultrasound and biopsy testing to detect cancer at its earliest, most treatable stages. "One in eight women will have breast cancer in their lifetime," Dr. Talukdar says. "When we look at all the factors that impact survival of breast cancer, teh biggest factor is how early we detect it. Since the start of regular screenings in the early 1990s, we've seen about a 40% reduction in deaths from breast cancer. Although the number of patients who get breast cancer has increased, the number who die has decreased."
When he's not working, Dr. Talukdar enjoys spending time with his wife, Najla and their two daughters.
